Need motivational words for sons...

Recommended Posts

I'm making some small motivational cards for my boys for the beginning of the school year. I plan to include them in one of their books throughout the week (and perhaps continue occasionally as the year progresses). We've been working hard to make this an efficient, fun, and happy school year for us. I just need some more ideas!


I have a couple, like "You've got what it takes to achieve success!" and "May this be the neatest, funnest, most awesome school year ever!" (I am aware that "funnest" isn't a proper word, but it sounds fun!) :)


My sons are 12 (7th grade) and 7 (2nd grade). Any suggestions for additional words of motivation and enthusiasm? I'm at a loss!
